    My step son gave me four "books" of drapery fabric samples he rescued when a relative was moving. The sample swatches are 12"x18". I knew I could do something with them. Two of the sample books were identical. I did a little tweaking of the pattern in order to use the fabric samples and the lining fabric came from my stash. I like the pattern because the only hardware used is the magnetic closure. The pattern is Shelly's Bag from Sewphisti-Cat.

    Very nice! A good use for drapery fabric samples, too.

    You could also make toss pillows out of them, or even floor pillows.
